Pelagou arises from a lifetime of experiences in the very high end textile world and the knowledge of quality enhances pelagou´s uniqueness.

The frenetic rhythm of the fashion industry drove me away and I wanted to leave it for good, but loving friends encouraged me to start something utterly new which sent me on an untrodden new path in my life. Seeds of something new started to grow.

The connective tissue of family businesses with long traditions, fantastic skills and crafts and a worldwide web of friends and lovers of quality gave me the courage to jump out of my comfort zone into wonders.

A dream wanted to become true!

Today, after ten years of organic growth, pelagou and I still love to continue this journey of witnessing the unfolding of this dream.

And this magical place Eftalou, where the first seed of pelagou was planted remains until today the best place to create, transform and nurture all the ideas to go on manifesting my dreams.

The magical place Eftalou, is where the first seed of pelagou was planted… until today it remains my favourite place to create, transform and nurture all my ideas and to go on manifesting my dreams.

We use 100% GOTS certified Organic Cotton-Jersey

This material has been created especially for pelagou. Egyptian featherlike cotton jersey quality manufactured and dyed in Northern Italy with the most knowledgeable hands and eyes (dear friends out of long lasting relationships), all styles become a kind of fluid caressing second skin or a living additional tissue on your Body.

We maintain the highest quality material, sustainably manufactured and dyed in Italy

The heart of my manufacturing is a family business in Northern Italy run by a mother with her four daughters serving the most exclusive brands of the world.

Trust is our language since many years!

Sustainability is not only defined through the ingredients but also through the whole process and the participating people and their conscious approach to their work.

Sustainability is also about protecting traditions, evolving experiences, growing skills, keeping that knowledge not only in our minds and intellects but also in our crafting hands.

By appreciating hand crafts on the same level as mind crafts we nourish the roots of our existence.

Sustainability comes from the collaboration between humans that put all their skills and talents together to create a common vision and a mindful product.

This, for me, is the real organic soil on which to grow pelagou.

Luxurious Italian knitwear made by an 82 year old lady, Tamara

In 2015 I occasionally met Tamara, a very knowledgeable Italian lady that was born in a knitting mill at the core of Italians knitting industry, Emiglia Romagna. After years of not using her amazing abilities, Tamara agreed to knit our luscious pelagou knit pieces.

We are now making these most desired knit pieces which cover your Body with a warm soft shell, at any time of the year.

These pieces are customized in colour and size to give you that Haute Couture feeling of a perfect fit.

Pelagou is not just a click!

One of my first thoughts regarding my brand were directed towards the way of distribution.  It was very important to me, for the product to speak for itself and for people to talk about pelagou because they see it and touch it on other people. 

Many believed that I was living in a dream world by only selling and making my product known by word of mouth. But actually, the dream is manifesting itself as pelagou really has been reaching people all over the world!, only by word of mouth, in the past ten years. It is unbelievable what parts of the world people are writing me from and how people came into contact with pelagou pieces. 

Being in close contact with my customers gives me the possibility to inspire myself and for them to find previously unimaginable combinations of colours and styles. Often this dialog and the experimental approach of trying combinations brings beautiful and very satisfying results for them and myself. This process of interaction also gives me important feedback and inspiration for future development.

And that is exactly how I want to continue doing it.
And so this is why pelagou is not  just a click!

Colours are the subtle language of pelagou… 

Colour plays the most central role in pelagou.  Colours are a reflection of light and pelagou carries a lot of this light through its colours, inspired by nature.

Every time I come to Greece, I see new colours and especially new colour combinations in the ever changing seasons and the varying altitudes of the sun. The Aegean Sea and the sky in Greece alone are a source of a mere inexhaustible palette of colours. 

My professional past has given me a long-term friendship with a  highly professional  dyeing mill in the north of Italy.  They never stop being curious and eager to try out new things. Through their exceptional knowledge they have managed to work for a diversity of clients in the high-end segment of Europe and satisfy their requirements through continuous research. 

They keep proving the mastery of craftsmanship when I give them stones, soil, plants or other nature findings or pictures as colour samples, to find new colours for pelagou.

The joy of seeing what impact those colours have on my customers and to be part of experiencing the play of combinations with the colours, stands above all else!

All colours are certified Ökotest 100.
